Sequim open air market

Wednesday Farmers Market! This is the hottest news for the Open Aire Market. We are most excited to have expanded to the northeast corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street from 2-6 p.m. every Wednesday. This market is specifically for farmers and food producers. We are grateful to The Sandwich Shop for making this generous offering. In an effort to generate awareness of our local farms and food producers, John Junnell has made this space available. Come on down on Wednesday afternoon for your produce, fresh breads, fresh fish, local grass-fed beef, locally made chocolates and fresh roasted coffee.

The midweek market is in addition to our Saturday market where hours remain 9 a.m.-3 p.m. every Saturday through October on Cedar Street in downtown Sequim, between Sequim and Second avenues.

Friends of the Fields has kicked off its four-week fundraiser selling strawberry shortcake at the market! Come early and get yours! Hooray for strawberry season!

This week Sequimarimba will be entertaining us. A real treat for all ages.
